Good morning, friends! Let's wake up this morning with something super-simple - nice and easy for a Sunday morning!
Have you used the Sliding Star Framelit Dies? They are SO fun. I'm pretty much in love with them, and there are going to be a lot of spinners in my future! This was the first one I whipped up. And let my mistakes become your tips - read on!
The stamps in Shooting Star are SO cute, and paired with the Sliding Star Framelits, you can make some really cool interactive cards. As I said, though, I learned a few things NOT to do when I made this card!
A few quick and easy tips to make your spinner cards a success -
- When you cut out your track, keep the "track" piece until you assemble your card.
- Place all three pieces back together - the main piece, the "track," and the inside circle - and set them down on your card. Use the "track" piece as a guideline to place your outside and inside pieces exactly even. If you don't - as I didn't - your spinning embellishment will get stuck.
- Use dimensionals sparingly and toward the outside edge when adhering your outside and inside pieces. You don't want the spinning part to hit them on the way around.
- Slip a small coin or washer under the track, then trim a dimensional into a smaller cicle and place on top. Adhere embellishment to top of dimensional. There is no need for a second coin or washer on top of the dimensional.
- Don't place any banners or embellishments over the track, like I did here - or if you do, know that your spinner will get stuck and not be able to spin past them.
Have a fabulous day!
